How Really Big Data is Changing Genomics Weill Cornell researcher Christopher Mason channels his inner Yoda at the WorldQuant Global Summit.

Growing up in Racine, Wisconsin, Christopher Mason first became interested in genetics in 8th-grade science class when he learned how cells developed. Now an associate professor at Weill Cornell Medical College, Mason leads a lab focused on creating and deploying computational methods in functional genomics to explain the genetic basis of human disease. In 2015, he talked about how Big Data is changing genomics during WorldQuant's Global Summit in Puerto Rico. 

During his entertaining and fast-paced presentation, Mason discusses how Weill Cornell is integrating quantitative measurement into sequencing genomes to make real-world applications for really big data.
